CT Scuderia is the brainchild of third generation Italian watch maker Enrico Margariteli, whose impressive career has included collaborations with Emporio Armani and Fossil, as well as his own brands of the past, Soviet watches and Key West. Contatempo Scuderia is a collection of unique timepieces that blend the meticulous mechanics of Swiss construction and design inspired by Margariteli’s personal involvement in professional motorcycle racing. Handmade in Switzerland, these watches utilize the same leather found in luxury sports cars for their interchangeable straps, while the positioning of the crown and pushers on each timepiece recall the aesthetic and functionality of a vintage stopwatch.
